On a hot umid day like me we had when we visited Old Town, the free ride on King Street was a special treat. It' s air conditioned and have an informative video about the town to watch while you ride in it.

This trolley will take you close to anything you want to see in old town. It is the only way to go. The last 2 years we have used this to get around and find things.
